T.W. Hicks, Inc. Meets the Demand for Sustainable Coating such as Cool Roofs!

At T.W. Hicks, Inc., we know there are several sustainability drivers that builders and general contractors are looking for. When it comes to dependable commercial floors, you want long-term durability to reduce the carbon footprint of a building, elements that are energy efficient and that reduce volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants to enter the environment while maintaining indoor air quality.

One example of sustainable coating is cool roofs. These site-applied systems, consisting of sheet membrane systems with reflective granules as well as fluid-applied coatings with reflective pigments, is an excellent form of sustainability in that a great deal of heat is reflected rather than permeated into a building, therefore requiring less energy loads from the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

The fluid-applied coatings have been the leading choice as of lately in that it reduces the leakage points found more commonly with sheet membrane systems, therefore contributing to a longer life cycle and less need for repairs or a more durable system. These systems include moisture-cured polyurethanes and have higher physical properties, are water resistant and have excellent adhesion to substrates. These are systems our teams at T.W. Hicks, Inc. have a great deal of experience applying and would love the opportunity to bring this efficiency to your business.
